Don't Move My Cheese IWSG

IT'S MOVING DAY!!!
(Or it was two days ago and I may or may not have a functional internet connection.)

So how about some moving funnies, eh?





Is it just me, or is this guy moving a wedge of stinky cheese?


This is about how I feel right now. (Like the dog.) My insecurity this month is simple: will I lose my mind around this move? And will I be able to make any writing progress while wrangling the kids at our two month "vacation rental" while the new house is being built? Send some virtual love to keep me going, eh?





Ready to guess the lie and win a book? 

Last week, the amazing Tara Tyler shared BROKEN BRANCH FALLS with us, along with two truths and one lie. Those who guessed the lie correctly were entered into a random drawing for the chance to win her ebook.

Tara's game:

1. When Tara was young, she and her classmates would have recess in the snow and once made a dragon as long as the school.
2. When she was growing up, she and her family were the victims of burglars two times in two different houses.
3. When she was young, a huge St Bernard tackled her, causing her to be afraid of dogs.

And the lie is: 

#1. The dragon they made was only half as long as the school, but it was huge!  In Massachusetts, they had blizzard days rather than snow days and had to wear heavy layers to school and leave them in a big walk-in coat closet. Additional truth - Tara was once sent to the coat closet at school for laughing too loudly! She's always had a big mouth.

Way to guess those of you who got it right! And the winner is:

...DRUM ROLL...

Hilary Melon-Butcher!

Congrats Hilary!
And now to today's feature:

When Colin Leventhal leaned out his bedroom window on the night of May 12th and said goodbye to his girlfriend, he never expected it would be forever. But when Sarah Evans goes missing that night, Colin's world unravels as he transforms from the boyfriend next door to the main police suspect. Then one year later, at her memorial service, Colin makes a phone call that could change everything. Is it possible that Sarah is still alive? And if so, how far will he go to bring her back?  

As Colin struggles with this possibility, across the street, Sarah’s little sister, Claire learns how to navigate the strange new landscape of life without her sister. While her parents fall apart, Claire remains determined to keep going, even if it kills her.

THIS IS SARAH serves as a meditation on loss, love, and what it means to say goodbye.

Ally Malinenko is the author of the poetry collection, The Wanting Bone (Six Gallery Press) and the children’s fantasy Lizzy Speare and the CursedTomb (Antenna Books). She lives in Brooklyn with her husband.

Her favorite cheese is camembert and her favorite place to eat it is the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris - which is also the only place she's eaten it. She's also cool with extra sharp cheddar and would even break her "no eating food on the subway" rule for it.

Ally gave me two truths and one lie to test your "lie detector" skills. Those who figure out the lie will go into my magic hat for the chance to win an eBook of THIS IS SARAH

You have until Tuesday, July 8, at 1 p.m. EDT to guess--and be sure to come back for the answer on July 9.

TRUTH OR LIE

1. Ally fell off a waterfall in high school and cracked her skull open.
2. She was kicked out of the country of Monaco when she was 16 for "trespassing."
3. She's stepped foot on nearly every continent in the world.

Which is the lie? What's your favorite/least favorite part about moving? What's the best place you've ever lived? Have you ever made a snow dragon? Do you read tear-jerkers?

  2. Oh my God I hope #1 is a lie!

    And yes, moving is definitely stressful isn't it?? It's one of the most stressful things we do. But hopefully the two months go fast :)

    I hope you have a great holiday weekend!!

    1. Thanks so much, Keith. The move went as smoothly as could be expected, and here we are, temporarily settled and ready to go again in a month or two. Whew!

  3. The worst part of moving is putting stuff back together once you get to the new place. It's easy to dump everything onto the bed, then grab the blanket by all four corners and haul it out to the car. (I did that a few times back in college). But once I get to where I'm going I actually have to sort through the stuff. Arggg!

    1. LOL. A blanket... You must pack like my husband does. I'm a little more meticulous about making sure everything gets in the right boxes so the house is easier to put together once we get landed. =)

  4. Good luck on that move. Been there--actually last September. Everything is NOT in its place because Hubs decided to finish the basement so we'll both have offices. Nice, right? WRONG. All my writing "stuff" is still in boxes. Except my laptop, thank goodness. It will all work out, I'm sure. Sending you a cyber-hug and lots of patience.

    1. I know how that goes. When we got in our last house we have plumbing issues, then some flooding and it put "settling in" on a delay.

  5. The first two - wow! I'll say the second is the lie.
    Don't stress the move. Know that it will take some time off your writing and don't pressure yourself.

  8. (Okay, no idea where my first comment went...so if this is a duplicate blame it on summer-brain.) Best of luck moving! It's never fun, but it does end...theoretically. I still have boxes around here from my last one. My guess is #2!

  15. Okay, three times a charm. Just signed out by mistake when I meant to publish and needed to sign-in to publish.

    I empathize. We have friends who just moved from Manchester, NH to Dallas, TX. Most of the time the husband had to be in TX to work while the wife had to pack.

  32. Try to unpack as quickly as possible, otherwise you will find yourself searching boxes trying to find something you "really need." Best to get it all out of boxes, even if it isn't directly put away. Good luck with the transition period. You will be in your new digs soon enough and it will be your new oasis!

  34. Let's see; I'll guess #1 is the fib.

    Worst thing about moving? For me, it would be packing up all the stuff we've accumulated in the 43 years we've lived in this house. Ugh! Gives me heart palpitations just to think of it. That's why we're staying put! Hopefully, we'll get all of that "stuff" down to manageable levels before we die, so our poor kids won't have to deal with it all.

    Sending hugs your way. (Oh, and cheese, of course.)

    ReplyDelete

    1. 43 years in one place? That's AMAZING. I don't know that I'll ever be able to settle in to a single location for so long, but that's the dream, eh?

  35. Oh moving is the worst. I think I dread packing the most. It seems to go on forever. I'm planning a big move to an island in 2016, and I'm sure it will be a nightmare. But, while all moves are stressful, they do signify a new beginning--an adventure. Good luck with everything, and enjoy your new home!

  43. Oog, moving... I'm seeking a job in Seattle, so I keep thinking about it, and I know moving will be difficult - I've lived in this place for 10 years, so packing should be... fun. -_- But I moved here from Vermont, where we got massive amounts of snow. I piled up a big lump of it once and tried to carve it into an angel or something, using a sword. Yep, an actual sword. It didn't go well. Got weird looks from the neighbors too.

    Hope your move goes well and you can still get in some writing time despite the chaos.

  75. I love the dog in the packing peanuts. That's hilarious! I hate moving. If I never had to move again, I'd be happy. But to get to a nice new place, it's necessary. Congratulations on successfully making it through all the craziness.

  78. Good luck with the move, Crystal. We just moved cities and went without a decent internet connection for over a month! Now I'm dealing with power breakdowns. What won't kill us will only make us stronger and all that! ;)

    1. A month? Holy cow. Are you still alive? I'm not sure I would be. You are one STRONG woman.

  79. Hi, Crystal! I couldn't take that photo of a sheep... er, dog out of my mind. Hehehe... Really, I thought it was a strange looking sheep at first glance. LOL! Hope you had a wonderful move and are now settling in nicely at your new place. Take care.

  81. Good luck with the move! Never one of my favorite things to do. Looks like I might have to buckle up to it though, next year. Might be moving then... after our daughter is married! Arg! Yep, I'll be in wedding planning pandemonium until next June!!!
